In my main drive list of folders, there were two files which are similar but I don't what's the difference.
One lists as "Program Files" and the other "Program Files (x86)". The contents seem similar. I know that the one with (x86) has something to do with the OS which is Win7 Ultimate 64Bit.

If you have two Program Files directories it means you have a 64-bit operating system. The "Program Files" directory is the 64-bit folder and the "Program Files (x86)" directory is the 32-bit directory. You need both of them.
